Great quesiton. The following video will likely answer many of your questions.
"Hi, I am Dr. Brian Kleinman and I am a root canal specialists (endodontists). I do root canals exclusively. Two years of education at an accredited university after graduating from dental school are required to be a root canal specialist.
I have taken the additional steps to become a board certified endodontis. Board certification requires multiple years of study and passing multiple examinations while in practice. This process ensures that I am up to date on the newest and best technology to save teeth. The process to become board certified is a long and hard one. This is why the vast majority of endodontist are not board certified. I strive to be the best at all I do and board certification is one way you can be assured we offer the best care possible to our patients.

Patient Testimonial: "Due to the skill of the doctor one of my teeth was saved. I had a root canal done in PA that failed and abscessed and needed an apicotomy which was done by an oral surgeon in PA. The abcess never fully cleared. I moved to AZ and my general dentist here referred me to Northern Arizona Endodontics and they found a 4th canal that was missed. He redid my root canal and I am in the process of a full recovery thanks to their expertise. Thank you so much!"--Sandra Alger--local
Patient Testimonial: "I was very very anxious and the girls calmed me down. Your office staff and procedure are excellent. The young lady that describes each step is wonderful I can not be thankful enough. "--Sandra Bradley
Patient Testimonial: "I was very pleased and satisfied with the service being so professional. I'm also very happy I went to you for my root canals. I would & will recommend your office to anyone I talk to about root canals," states Phil Robinson of Prescott, AZ.

Nothing is as good as your natural teeth!
Saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice when dental care is needed. Nothing, not even the most advanced bridges and implants, can truly replace your natural tooth.
If your dentist recommends extracting your tooth, ask if it can be saved with an endodontic procedure, also known as root canal treatment. Endodontic treatment removes the injured pulp (soft inner tissue) of your tooth and fills and seals the space.
Your tooth is then restored and can function just like any other tooth usually for the rest of your life, ensuring comfortable chewing and a natural appearance.
Endodontists can often save the most severely injured teeth.
If your tooth cannot be saved — and some cannot — you may consider replacements such as a bridge or dental implant. Your options may depend upon the condition of surrounding teeth and bone structure.
Do everything possible to save your teeth before considering extraction. Nothing is as good as your natural teeth!
